better for chuck hagel to be confirmed as defense secretary, perhaps as early as next week. although some lawmakers are softening their criticism. tough opposition continues on capitol hill. >> yeah. >> in a letter, 15 republican senators urged for hagel to withdraw his nomination including marco rubio and ted cruz. the letters read, in part, "while we respect senator hagel's honorable military service in the interest of national security, we respectfully request that you withdraw his nomination. it would be unprecedented for a secretary of defense to take office without the broad base of bipartisan support and confidence needed to serve effectively in this critical position. ted cruz at it again, with respect, with respect, with respect. in the last 50 years, no other secretary of defense has been confirmed with more than three members voting against him and in the entire history of the position, no one has been confirmed with more than 11 no votes." >> that's sort of circular logic. you could make that argument. democrats could do that to any republican. if we just get 20 or 30 against
he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this was a total jaw-dropper this morning. oscar pistorius, for those people who don't know, is a south a
, and it sure isn't going to happen with chuck hagel whom we can discuss. but the whole idea that in this reckless fashion, congress is not stopping this move to sequester of the defense or the nondefense budget just boggles my mind. i haven't been there in two years, but the people who are there are shaking their heads. let me say this. i was in munich recently for the security conference, my 11th time with john mccain, lindsey graham and a on the of others. the europeans who have economic structural problems are trying to increase their defense capability and shaking their heads at us and looking at the fact that we don't have serious problems, but we're manufacturing these economic problems and may be slashing the heck out of our defense budget for this crazy political circus that sadly is congress now. >> mike barnicle. >> jane, let's stick with security. i mean, you were in the house intelligence committee when you were in congress, and now there's a lot of talk about the proposal to have a special court for drone strikes. and yet drone strikes are quite often, almost al
president obama's nominee to be the new secretary of defense, chuck hagel. whether or not they filibuster him that. >> don't have the votes, although at least one republican senator is threatening to try a filibuster anyway. senator lindsey graham of south carolina is also now threatening to put a hold on the hagel nomination, even though there is no precedent for that ever. no cabinet nomination has ever been filibustered or held by a senator. while lindsey graham is making the decision as to whether or not he wants to be famous forever for doing something nobody else has ever done in the history of the senate in order to block chuck hagel, the current defense secretary leon panetta is on his way out. they gave mr. panetta his sendoff on saturday, though it looks like he'll probably be in charge for another week or so. his time has been a period of lasting change for the u.s. military. after the end of the iraq war, he has overseen the beginning of the end of america's longest war ever in afghanistan. the clinton era policy of "don't ask, don't tell" ended under leon panetta's watch, at

hours the democratically controlled senate will once again hold a test vote on the nominee chuck hagel. he failed to meet the 60-vote threshold earlier this month amid concerns about his record. it was the first time the senate successfully filibustered a cabinet nominee. a final vote could be held tomorrow if hagel reaches 60 votes. >> notice anything different in these pictures? apparently first lady michelle obama's oscar dress is a little racy for iran, so they photo shopped it. during a report on the oscars, the first lady's dress suddenly had a high neckline and sleeves. mrs. obama helped announce "argo" as the winner of best picture which iranian officials also slammed as propaganda for the c.i.a. calling the oscars politically motivated. i actually like the dress on the right. i don't know what that means. >>brian: i didn't know iran had colorforms. what does iran think about the way ben affleck think about the way it was depicted? do you think it was for diplomatic reasons where they captured our hostages? do we skew that? >>steve: iran said it is basically farcical about the
around the president. >> what's the latest? the president saying good-bye to leon panetta. chuck hagel hasn't been confirmed -- >> chuck hagel -- at the white house, they're saying he's going to get confirmed. they had the 55 democrat and independent votes that they need. they still say a filibuster would not be successful. but in chuck hagel and in john kerry, what the president has is not a team of rivals. it's more a team of boosters. people he feels comfortable with. that's the way he's going, clearly, in the second term. not a lot of sort of outsiders that he doesn't know or feel will support him. >> we'll know when that final confirmation in the senate armed services committee -- >> we don't. although the chairman has said, you've had requests for more information about financial disclosure, this is more than is required. it's very clear that levin wants to get a vote going quickly. they'd like to have hagel confirmed by the 27th. >> gloria, thanks very much. >>> violent protests erupting on the streets of tunisia. lisa sylvester is monitoring that and some of the other top stori
. and the senate committee just delayed a vote on the president's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. lawmakers say that they are hoping it would happen tomorrow. but some republicans are asking for more information from the former nebraska senator. he faced some tough questions from fellow republicans at his confirmation hearing last week. they asked him about his record on israel, iran, and other issues. senators now say they hope to vote on his nomination as soon as possible. just in to fox news, the justice department will send lawmakers the classified legal arguments for droning american citizens to death. that's according to an administration official. yesterday, we got a look at the government's guidelines for killing americans in foreign countries. basically officials don't have to take to you court, charge you with anything, give you a lawyer, even notify you. they just have to decide that you are a senior terror leader and an imminent threat to the united states and that it would be too dangerous to try to capture you so then they can kill you. senators from both parties ha
at the pentagon, chuck hagel, and then john brennan, his pick for the cia. obviously the benghazi matter is an obstacle for chuck hagel's confirmation and vote there in congress and then this john brennan matter is very important to the issue of these targeted drone strikes, rand paul, the senator from kentucky has said that he is willing to hold up that vote on john brennan. if he doesn't receive assurances from the white house that the united states will not target any drone strikes on americans on american soil. so some of this information i think the administration is hoping will at least for now satisfy some of those members with these concerns, wolf. >> it's going to be a tough battle, i take it. both of these confirmations likely to go through next week. but it's by no means a done deal, is it? >> reporter: it's not a -- especially when you have senators saying they may hold up nominees and so we're going to have to wait and see whether or not senator paul is satisfied with the information that he's getting from the white house. but this is perhaps, you know, a break in an impasse
for why he wants the job. and that's one thing that we really didn't get a sense of from chuck hagel throughout the about three hours of testimony, he really made a passionate case for his love of serving the country, his expertise in this area, and the seriousness with which he would take some of the concerns these senators brought to him. promising more transparency, promising truthfulness when one democrat, in particular, said she has been, quote, jerked around by just about every cia director in her long tenure and time on that specific committee. so he was very persuasive there. when richard talks about the trouble he had with waterboarding, in part, he was really trying to avoid using the word "torture" because it does have a legal implication, and it has such a political implication. that that would have been such a huge headline if he had, in fact, called it torture. so he said pretty much everything around that. he does have the issue of having been part of a time when these things were used in saying, quite plainly, he didn't do anything to try to stop it. nears there's no
committee postponed a vote on chuck hagel. the reason, republicans want more of hagel's financial information, compensation for speechers the former republican senator gave after leaving office. hagel appears to have enough senate to break a possible filibuster and ultimately be confirmed but again it has been delayed for now. >>> chris christie is furious after former white house aide said she's concerned his weight problem might cause him to die in office. christie's response to the doctor "shut up" he says. jim acosta joins us live from washington. the governor quite blunt didn't appreciate it when the doctor was equally blunt, jim. >> no, i think, john, the governor would like a second opinion after all of this. chris christie responded to a former white house doctor's warnings about the new jersey governor's health calling the doctor as you mentioned a "hack" and telling her to "shut up." it started earlier when the potential presidential contender appeared on "the late show with david letterman" joked about his weight and took a bite from a doughnut, that concerned former wh
rights and trying to take down defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. >> have you been paid by a foreign government. >> it is unusual for a freshman to be this outspoken en a high profile issue. >> at the end of the day, i was elected to represent 26 million texans and to speak the truth. you know, i think a lot of americans are tired of politicians in washington in both parties who play games. >> reporter: the 42-year-old cuban american from texas, studied the principles and memorized the constitution as a teenager thanks to his father, a cuban refugee. he became splis ter general of texas, arguing for state rights and religious freedom before the u.s. supreme court. tea party activist bucked the gop establishment to help elect cruz. >> he's the total package. he's a great messenger for ideas, a true believer and a guy you never have to wonder about how he's going to vote. >> reporter: conservatives in texas may be ecstatic he's so aggressive so fast, but for some senior republican senators, not so much. what are guiding principles of the senate for a freshman senator is come in and be
heard from senator lindsey graham. he said chuck hagel won't be confirmed for secretary of defense until we hear from leon panetta what exactly went down in benghazi. so leon panetta showed up with general martin dempsey and they testified that the response was adequate and it was enough and there simply was not enough time to get help to our four americans who died in benghazi. they said, even though there were aircraft 90 minutes away, it would have taken nine to 12 hours to deploy an armed aircraft. extraordinarily, i don't see how that's possible. >> brian: i don't see how it is either. not having been secretary of defense, you have to take their word. but under questioning, it never came out when the president was run examining never came out from mitt romney to president obama directly. it was up to lindsey graham who has been indefatiguable in defending the truth. listen. >> if i were a family member and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach of the the president of the united states talked to the secretary of defense for 15 minutes, never talke
